    these women always inspire me of how wonderful our daughters can be when we invest in them. It’s amazing how their dad trained them and encouraged them in their craft even though they grew up in poverty. and now look at the lovely ladies they grew up to be!

    Venus smiling broadly for more than one reason.

    Ohh and this a really nice shot, especially like the spin on the old white saviour trope.

    Anybody else reminded of that stupid Big Sean-Nicki Minaj song??

      Me and mine do. Is it something you can work on or something you want to work on?

      Also, friends can be closer than sisters

    Back to the good old days.

    Then came “The Fed” in the other draw. Maybe a match up with Nadal if he defeats Dimitrov.

    Finals with the legends. Rolling back the years.

      Bless. Venus is a strong opponent. So Serena shouldn’t let her win. They should both play a mean game. I can’t wait for it!
